It’s the final count-down…18 February , 2013
I can’t even begin to explain to you how tired I am…
We had a good weekend, but for some reason I haven’t been able to sleep properly for the last three nights. Last night for instance I managed to sleep from 4:00 to 5:00.
I attribute my restlessness to all the bad news of late. Everything I’m just about ready to fall asleep I either hear a door or I imagine hearing a door or a noise, and up I am – off to check if someone’s in the house. So either my neighbours are in the habit of slamming doors randomly every half an hour or so between 21:00 and 03:00 or I just need to pull my head out of my backside and relax. Anxious or hyper-vigilant would be good words to describe me at the momen, that and exhausted.
Luckily we are in the final stretch before our long awaited vacation. Saturday bright and early we’re off to the coast for a week with the family, and I for one cannot wait. I am going to sleep even if I have to sedate myself, take looooooong walks on the beach with Nicola and whomever wants to tag along, catch things in rock pools, swim, sand, sun, good food and great company…and I am going to not be online for anything whatsoever except paying my bills on payday with internet banking. No facebook, no Twitter, no News24, no email, no calls, no SMS, no Whatsapp, no, none, zip, nada, squat. So tough luck to anyone having a birthday next week, I will not be aware of the date if I can help it – so please accept my congratulations and apologies in advance.
Some classic Nicola:
- Having a picnic with Pasta (that being the name of this pooch)
- Social grooming on Oupa
- Our first sunflower
